Our curriculum aims to give our students access to a range of subjects and disciplines enabling them to become well-rounded British Citizens.
We aim for all our students to successfully and confidently contribute to society into adulthood. Students are supported in identifying their hopes and dreams for the future and we aim for them to leave the school with realistic aspirations that they are prepared to achieve. We always intend to give students the skills, knowledge and confidence for independent living. A range of subjects are delivered with functional Mathematics and English taught throughout the curriculum as well as life skills, social skills and British Values. Literacy and numeracy form a strong base of our curriculum and students’ access ‘Key Skills’ teaching in these subjects on a daily basis.
The school seeks and utilises the strengths of the individual students and will always personalise provision for those students with special talents and interests where this is appropriate for the student. We work in partnership with other settings, including local mainstream schools and colleges to provide this provision if we are not equipped for the delivery of a specific area.
The Mark Way School is an extremely ambitious school; consequently, all of our students are able to access accreditation at a level appropriate to their ability. Students are challenged and emotionally supported in achieving excellent results in their accreditation to enable them to access learning in their chosen areas post 16.
At Mark Way School we believe that students are inspired, motivated and learn a great deal from meaningful experiences outside the classroom. We aim to create as many learning experiences outside the classroom as possible. In doing this we hope to promote a greater understanding of our local community. Additionally, we hope to engender our students with the virtues that we feel are important for success in life. We believe that by experiencing more of their immediate outdoor environment they will leave us with a greater sense of British Values and their place within British Community.
